National Nissan Xterrra Meet At Wooly’s Off Road Park

When the Nissan Xterra debuted in early 2000 it was promoted as an off-road–capable SUV designed for the adventure-seeking outdoor enthusiast. While the new platform didn’t immediately convert the hardcore wheeling majority, it did gain considerable notoriety with Nissan enthusiasts—so much so that not long after the Xterra’s release, enthusiast websites dedicated to the Xterra began to emerge.

The Xterra meet is open to all generations and build types. With over 50 registered Nissan 4x4s at the event, the first annual National Xterra Meet was a huge success.

Fast-forward over a decade later and the Xterra has become an extremely popular wheeling platform that continues to collect an enthusiast following. These body-on-frame SUVs have even gained respectable attention from the aftermarket. Given the Xterra’s popularity, the Nissan X community thought it was only fitting that a National Xterra Meet should take place. Using the power of the Internet, two of the largest enthusiast-driven Nissan Xterra forums ( and pooled their resources to form what is slated to be an annual Xterra event.

Since this was the first National Xterra Meet, the event coordinators thought what better place to kick off the meet than in North American Nissan’s home state of Tennessee? Over the three-day event, registered Xterra owners were treated to a Nissan production facility tour, a car show, and a wheeling day at Wooly’s Off Road Park.

We caught up with the Xterra gurus just as they were heading out onto the trail system at Wooly’s in Cornersville, Tennessee. After spending a day with Xterra devotees we were impressed not only with the Nissan’s capabilities off-road, but the genuine good nature and enthusiasm of the guys and gals sitting behind the wheel.
